Is your healthcare facility able to operate in a disaster situation? As part of America's vital health care infrastructure hospitals, convalescent centers and other senior care facilities are encouraged by the AHA and U.S. Department of Human and Health Services to step up their readiness efforts in order to be better prepared to respond to disaster threats such as extended power outages, floods, storms, EMP and terrorist attacks. During these events patients may need to be equipped with wireless nurse call devices that can operate when there is no power or when patients must be moved to a temporary shelter. These small, lightweight devices are also valuable to have on hand in case of the failure or replacement of an existing nurse call system. All devices are battery operated and the small desktop master or console provides a visual display of the alarm information along with an audible sounder to attract staff attention. All devices are monitored by the master for both battery status and operation and will display an alert if any device is not detected or has a low battery. Systems Technologies has 25 years of experience in the engineering and manufacture of wireless nurse call systems for emergency, temporary and permanent installation and use.
